The EU recognizes the strategic importance of the Ukrainian agro-industrial sector for both Ukraine and countries of the European Union, said Stefan Fule, EU Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy, on March 26 in Kiev during a meeting with Igor Schwayka, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine.
"We understand the strategic importance of agriculture for both Ukraine and the European Union.
